Eilidh has made a significant contribution in terms of confidence and boosting morale for a group of much in need accountants! We have used her in the past and we’ll use her again in the future.

Within two minutes of meeting Eilidh, I knew I wanted her involved in boosting staff morale - that’s the sort of impact she has on people!

thumb Jon Maslen-Jones,
General Manager, Compass Group.

Working with Eilidh doesn't feel like work! She has a great skill of bringing fun, energy, and passion to the workplace. I had the pleasure to work with Eilidh for a conference with my organization and she was easy to communicate and work with from day one. Her ability to listen and understand our organization was matched by none. In addition to an energetic keynote speech, Eilidh was able to bring tailored sessions to our organization to take advantage of her time while in the US. It was a pleasure and refreshing experience to work with Eilidh and I hope our paths cross again soon!

thumb Debbie Brin
Vice President HR, LaSalle, Chicago,.

I would recommend Eilidh to any company looking for a great speaker no matter the topic being discussed! Eilidh is genuine, engaging and a joy to listen to. I met her on a course on networking and she made the whole thing a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone. I would definitely like to attend another one of Eilidh's talks
